achieve. >> well, are they? the endurable myth about the obama presidency to which mr. obama subscribes is that he's tremendously persuasive. i don't think his advocacy of obama care and the health care bill supports that. >> it did pass. >> it did pass with chicanery and reconciliation and lots of other things, but he did not move the country which is what he's trying to do with the nra. obama's approval rating 52%, the nra's approval rating 54%. >> republicans in congress is 17%. >> since gun control came back to the top of the agenda, the nra has acquired 250,000 new members, so we're going to find out. you saw by putting up the statements by some of the democratic senators that there's a resistance in the democratic caucus because they have six seats up next time. >> all of those senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> so how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people are pushing back a
wanted to call and get my comments on today's ceremony. it is very moving. i did not vote for mr. obama. i hope he surrounds himself with people that we give him counsel. he was hoping we would come together, works for the next four years. the most moving part was beyonce's singing of the national anthem. i hope we can go forward as one nation. >> she writes the benediction is lovely but what about separation of church and state? next is a call from santiago. i thought president obama's speech was really good. agree with james taylor and beyonce. their performances were great. he did not talk about bipartisanship and he should have. host: the speech was clocked in at just over 18 minutes. next is a call from gary. caller: thank you for letting me call. i was very impressed with its. it is a good day for us all to come together. it is a very special shout out you were finishing the national anthem. they started ripping the president's, his agenda, his speech. this is fairly biased news. >> your seen pictures from inside the capitol. but macsharry this beautiful shot. the congressional lu
. mr. obama sworn in. a small ceremony using a bible that belonged to his wife's family. chief justice john roberts used a note card this time avoiding, you might remember, the verbal stumble of four years ago. the president, of course, will do tomorrow in public in the traditional setting outside the capital using the same lincoln bible he used four years ago and a bible that belonged to the reverend martin luther king, jr. hundreds of thousands of people from across the country, some from around the world, will be here in the nation's capital to witness hit. earlier today at the vice president's official residence, joe biden was sworn into office for a second term. doing the honors there, justice sonia sotomayor making her the first la that knee to administer an oath to a president or vice president. at this hour across the nation's capital, parties and events kicking off, including the red, white, and blue ball, the hip-hop ball and the let freedom ring concert and what i call behind us the erin burnett ball. >> the jonk kihn king ball. we have people out having a good time includin
senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people pushing back against. although it is interesting with the increased number of women in congress that it might have a better shot than 1994, 29% of republican men voted for the assault weapons ban and almost 70% of republican women. so you could see a difference because of that. but i think that background checks, waiting period, you bi is suicide. and to put in a waiting period could help with suicide. >> rick, how -- >> i think you could start to see some movement on those aspects. >> how do you think republicans shut play this. >> i think we should stick to our guns and, you know, george reminded me of something i said to him back in '94 when i ran for the senate in pennsylvania. he said am i going to win, i said guns. i don't think -- i think it's an even more important issue for people today given
." host: mr obama was less explicit but his emphasis was on the virtues. patricia, republican. caller: hello. i have a question for you. you get black, white, no matter what. when he says that, that is so true. i mean, we all are created equally. but my question for mr. obama is he swore, he used martin luther king's traveling bible, and he swore on lincoln's bible also. correct? host: that is what i heard. caller: my question to you is, did he read either of those two blocks and comprehend what he wrote? when he said that everybody should have a chance, why is he abortion? give that child a chance. am i correct? host: what does that mean it to you? caller: let's get rid of abortion. the gaze he spoke about, he did not comprehend what he read in the bible. maybe he needs help in that area. and every man is equal. let's give these children who are aborted, let's no longer let it go on. let's give them a chance. correct? host: ok, patricia. we will go to mary and next. caller: i thought he did a great speech yesterday. i think what a lot of people are missing the point on was he was not
when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun free zones for ours. >> cenk: hmm devastating. it turns out the president has armed guards, and so do his kids. wow, i didn't see that coming. let's bring in an expert to rebut this. eric beolert. former senior editor for salon and rolling stone. this is the short version of the ad. tell what's might be an issue here? >> well, attacking the president's kids. that very first sentence, the president's kids. they just should have stopped there and thrown it away and start over. you don't run attack ads against the first family's school-aged children. that's insane. every was just aghast at this. if we thought wayne lapierre's press conference in december was out there and tone deaf this ad is just amazing. a month after a school massacre you're going to raise questions whether the first family's kids receive too much secret service protection? >>
it the republican national committee first big meeting of the year. they know full well if the president could, mr. obama would love to set the g.o.p. gang years. it's important for them to find new ways to try to advance conservatism. instead of playing defense against the obama agenda here in washington. notwithstanding the defeat to mitt romney last year. the wake of last year's election in 24 states literally half the country, republicans now control not only the governor's offices but both majorities of the two chambers the houses and the senate. it's a big advantage. it's a chance for republicans to play offense at the states. and quietly aggressively next week when they meet in charlotte, north carolina. that's one of the things they are going to be talking about. look to scott walker back in wisconsin from last year as a model. this conference is going to it be a big deal and it's the republican's first attempt to get things in order and move ahead. >> bill: they have to do something because we will be back to the blue moose party because the -- >> -- that's a dated reference. >> i'm sorry

address. mr. obama's worst term a lot of evidence of the peril to the planet. record-breaking heat waves, forest fires, disappearing polar ice in a court with the prediction of the climate scientists. the effects were happening faster and more severely than predicted. you do not have to believe the scientists while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure
